    Welcome to the ninth edition of the USN Weekly Roundup! I'm really, really sorry for the lack of round ups these past few weeks! I've been really busy in real life, with University starting soon, and other things which I won't mention here. Anyway, it's back, and it's as big as ever! Loads of big news this week, including Zelda 1, Sonic 1, Knytt Stories and Black Tiger ports/remakes, all new homebrew for Wii and DS, and much more!
